The irony of the situation wasn't lost on me...less than 2 hours after the grandkids move in with us, our big flat screen tv quits working (no, they didn't break it - it just quit). Great. It's not something I'm prepared to replace at a moments notice - after all, we've only had it for a couple of years. In fact, ironically, we have had it for exactly 2 years...as of tomorrow. Bummer for Costco...we have the 2 year warranty.
